Oscar nominated director and Prometheus 2 helmsman Ridley Scott talks Blade Runner 2 release date confirming veteran actor Harrison Ford to reprise his role as Rick Deckard from the 1982 original movie. Here's more news about the Blade Runner 2 Release Date. 

During his interview with Variety however, Scott announced that he will no longer direct the movie but is still on board as the film's producer. He mentioned that the production will begin sometime this year.

Moreover, the movie script is already finished by writer Hampton Fancher and Green Lantern's screen writer Michael Green.

'We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first on. Harrison (Ford) is very much part of this one, but really it's about finding him, he comes in the third act,' Scott said.

Blade Runner was first shown back in 1982 and the storyline evolved around a veteran blade runner named Rick Deckard who tried to catch and kill four human-like robots known as replicants designed by Tyrell Corporation in the futuristic dystopian city of Los Angeles.

As the story went on, replicants were banned in the planet and should be primarily used for menial or dangerous works. The special police forces called the blade runners hunt down those who disobey this order.

Meanwhile, as to the release of Prometheus 2: Paradise, screen writer Damon Lindelof cited that this Ridley Scott film is just as unique that does not entirely depend on being an alien story but also touched on the idea of man's origin.

'Space exploration in the future is going to evolve into this idea that it's not just about going out there and finding planets to build colonies. It also has this inherent idea that the further we go out, the more we learn about ourselves,' Lindelof said. 'The characters in this movie are preoccupied by the idea: what are our origins?

Blade Runner 2 release date is yet to be announced while Prometheus 2 release date is slated to hit the theatres on March 4, 2016.
